The Dawning of New Minds

Days away from it being the year two thousand and twelve and I'm thinking to myself...or I should say still thinking to myself HOW IS THIS ALL HAPPENING?


Life is an absolute and wonderful mystery, and we're getting to play and tap dance on the frills of its twirling skirt.

Lost in the details of our every day human moments, we forget the vastness that is unfolding in and as us right now - the whole expanse of the cosmos, the whole expanse of multiple timelines, the whole field of unending unknown realities carry on, and here we are, reading a blog, stirring a mug of hot apple cider, or chatting about that lady who did x, y, and z the other day. What we let ourselves contain in awareness and what we're CAPABLE of containing in our awareness amazes me to no end.

Every time I sit to contemplate something, the narrowness of our everyday conversational content makes itself known. We favor the small details and make them important - we make small thinking important and overlook the magnificence of the kind of life we live, that we are alive, that we are the beings that we are, that these worlds and universes are what they are.

We are smack dab in the middle of sparkling brilliance and we choose to forget it. And what thrills me is what takes place when we are eye to eye and remembering it all. To be in the wonderment together, oh the beauty we birth in those moments, and the space we hold for a new kind of mind to be ours...here and now.

I love our sillyness.

What is not love?

The best tester for how stabilized you are in your perspective of love is change - what is your default response to change, to new information?

It's an ongoing exploration of where you are holding your self in relation to that unified tension-less state.

Love is on all sides of the equation.

Your brain hallucinates your conscious reality

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experie...
